#feature HEALTHY for the HABITS Home Office BY SUSANNA FLORES W hen I first set out to write a piece on health home office habits, I thought I had relatively good handle on the topic; after all, I have been working from a home office since 2007. After reaching out to several peers in our industry, I realized that I had a lot to learn. Working from home can sometimes be akin to being marooned on a desert island. You don't have co-workers around to point out that you haven't moved from the same position in over three hours or that you really need to chuck your broken chair. There are many benefits of working from a home office: flexibility, no commute and the ability to take a meeting in sweats. However, the drawbacks include unhealthy eating, lack of physical activity and - the biggest challenge of all - the inability to stop working even when your work day should be done. In this article, I will outline detailed tips from veteran home office workers from all aspects of our MPI community. 10 @MPIGNY SPRING 2015
